Welcome in Hungary! Top 3 places that you have to visit!


In Hungary there are so many popular and beautiful places. Hungary takes pride in its diverse culture, landscapes and cities. When tourists are coming they mostly interested about the capital, Budapest. Without a doubt it’s a wonderful city with a number of places of interest. But in this article I would like to recommend some other hungarian breathtaking sights.

1. Festetics Palace

The Festetics Palace is a Baroque palace located in the town of Keszthely. It functions as a museum and an events centre. The building is surrounded by a nature reserve park. The sights in the park include trees that are hundreds of years old, colourful flowerbeds, fountains, statues. The Festetics Family is one of the most significant ducal families in Hungary. The family, who was of Croatian origin, moved to Hungary in the 17th century. In 1739 Christopher Festetics (1696-1768) bought the Keszthely estate, where he started to build up the palace. Furthermore Keszthely is situated next to the Lake Balaton, which is the largest lake in Central Europe and one of the most visited place in Hungary.

2. Bugac

Bugac is a village in Bács-Kiskun county, in the Southern Great Plain region of southern Hungary. On the other hand, Bugac is one of the best known Hungarian plains, the largest area of the Kiskunság National Park and still today has an important place in the indigenous Hungarian domestic livestock. It has been a popular tourist destination for a long time. We can find here, for example the Shepherd Museum of Bugac and the Local History Collection. They offer horse show every day, tourists have possibility to take a tour by horse carriage. During the carriage ride the guests have the opportunity to relax in mere Bugacpuszta, and it gives a chance to explore the pristine environment where the tradition and sights are in unity. After the ride everyone has the chance to taste hungarian traditional dishes in Karikás Tavern.

3. Aggtelek

Aggtelek is situated in the Northern region of Hungary. Hereabout we can find the Aggtelek National Park. It has been part of the UNESCO World Heritage since 1995. The largest stalactite cave of Europe is situated in this area: the Baradla cave and it’s open for visitors. The Baradla Cave Short Tour is perhaps the most popular of the Aggtelek cave tours, taking guests on a 1 hour lit walk along walkways 1 km through this famous cave. We can explore a subterranean world unchanged since cavemen discovered it thousands of years ago. Occasionally they organise fantastic concerts in the cave.
